Power & Politics is a Canadian television news program focused on national politics, which airs daily on CBC News Network from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays.[1]

The program's original host was Evan Solomon. In September 2011, Rosemary Barton was added as host of the program's Friday edition after Solomon was also named host of CBC Radio One's The House. Barton also served as substitute host on other days if Solomon was unavailable, and other CBC political journalists occasionally filled in as well.

Since Solomon's departure from the CBC on June 9, 2015,[2] Barton is serving as the interim host of the show, with Terry Milewski as a back-up.[3] The program has not yet officially named a new permanent host.
